"The Bright Side of the Balkans"
Director of the School: Prof. Jovan Donev, PhD
The basic idea of this School is to point out the existence of the common Balkan experience, which as a result of different historical phenomena and processes, made a state of spiritual escapism with an asylum in the domain of particularities and differences.The aim of this School is to deconstruct the ideas of balkanism, as well as to think the construction of the Balkan identity as the “Other” of Europe. The debates are spreading through wide interdisciplinary spectrum, from the contemporary theories of identity through the cultural studies to the political studies and history.
